Christmas Program: Community sponsors are matched with an individual or family through a confidential, anonymous process. The sponsor purchases gifts based on the choices written in the applicant’s registration form. The Christmas Package includes turkey or ham with all the trimmings. Items that need to be purchased to complete the gifts and food are purchased through the generous donations received from the community.
